How we develop digital leadership

Digital leadership is not just about creating an all-powerful C-suite role to ‘own’ digital – it is about giving existing leaders the skills and tools to guide a networked organisation, cultivating emergent leadership, and getting all key digital stakeholders to work towards common goals.

 

The role of leadership in a digital, connected organisation is more important than ever.

As teams and individuals take control of their own work and old-style micro-management reduces in scope, we need leaders who can steer, make sense of complexity and influence people to do their best work together.

What we mean by leadership in the digital era is changing – it is more about connecting, supporting and integrating digital efforts, and less about big budget decision-making.

 

We need leaders to be architects and change agents in a period of flux – and they must seek to leave behind organisational operating systems that are healthier and more effective than those they inherited.

We coach, teach and work with senior and emerging leadership groups in large organisations to help them understand the requirements of an agile organisation and learn the techniques that will help them influence change.
